ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Brotherhood Concert Series was a collaboration of the Detroit-based Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus (UBC), under the direction of Oleh Mahlay, and the Winnipeg-based Hoosli Ukrainian Male Chorus, under the direction of William Solomon. Two concerts were presented in St. Catharines, Ontario on Friday, September 21, 2012 at the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria, and in Toronto, Ontario on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at Ryerson Theatre.

In March 2011, the leadership of both ensembles began discussing what a joint performance of Hoosli and the UBC could mean for the Ukrainian community in North America. It was immediately evident that, not only would it benefit the population at large, but it would also be an invaluable opportunity for upwards of 70 of the most passionate male chorus singers and bandura players in North America to come together to celebrate their common Brotherhood of Ukrainian choral and bandura music.
This collaborative effort brought together groups from both sides of the Canadian-American border, who share a common mission, specifically the majestic sound of four-part male harmony and the lyrical music of the bandura. Drawing inspiration from their ancestral homeland, the men in these groups invoke the spirit and legacy of the kobzari and kozaky with every performance. It is in honour of those very legends of Ukrainian culture that Brotherhood was chosen as such a fitting title for these concerts. The camaraderie and fraternity that was shared between kobzari and amongst kozaky is akin to the incredible connection that the members of these two ensembles feel every time they meet.

The repertoires of both groups cover an incredible breadth of Ukrainian choral and bandura music, and include compositions and arrangements from an illustrious list of the most renowned musical talents of Ukraine and North America. Featuring works by names like Bortniansky and Lysenko and Kytasty, and especially the poignant lyrics of Taras Shevchenko, the combined music libraries of the UBC and Hoosli are a boldly expressive history of Ukrainian culture, preserved through song. Every time a song that tells of the legacy of the Ukrainian people is sung by Hoosli or the UBC, each and every one of the men whose voice is part of that performance spiritually joins the Brotherhood of those great artistic icons of Ukrainian culture, as their song is carried on, for generations upon generations.
